This project examines whether racial or ethnic disparities exist in traffic enforcement practices.
This project examines traffic stops from all law enforcement agencies in Rhode Island. Researchers work with the Rhode Island division of Highway Safety and Ledge Light Technologies to determine whether racial or ethnic disparities exist in the traffic enforcement practices. IRJ researchers also work with law enforcement agencies to help institutionalize these types of analyses into the normal practices of each agency.
